In the United States
of America there are perhaps, no two topics of debate than the right
of Choice for a woman to have a legal and safe abortion, should she
choose to or not, many feel this is the main backbone to the movement
which is called The Pro Choice Movement. The
other heated topic of contention, is the argument as to the interpretation
of The Bill Of Rights in Article II which reads:
well regulated Militia being necessary to stand to the security
of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms
shall not be infringed.”
I find a rather strange
irony in the fact the majority of women who support the right for
women to choose if they want to terminate their pregnancy or not,
are in fact the same group of women who would interfere or prohibit
a woman’s RIGHT to defend herself with a firearm.
women of the Pro Choice movement decry the need for anyone in modern
times In a civilized society the need for private gun ownership, when
as they put it “that is what law enforcement officials are for
in the first place” and the women of the pro choice movement
are quick to point out that there are to many accidental shootings
and the killing of to many innocent children in the United States,
their solution is to simply ban guns.
Is there not an irony
in the logic of a group of women telling people banning guns will
stop violence and yet these same women think it highly absurd to tell
young woman to remain celibate or abstain from prematerial sex to
avoid an unwanted pregnancy?
What seems to be more
ironic is the fact the pro choice women tend to overlook the fact
one of the number one risks for women who are pregnant and choose
to have their child are often at risk of being murdered by the child’s
father solely based on the fact both mother and child have become
inconvenient to the father.
Further adding to the
irony, is the one true measure of protection for a woman who is in
an advanced state of pregnancy against a bigger, stronger, dominating
man who is determined to kill both her and her baby is a firearm.
The irony here is the main support group who’s dedicated cause
to support the life of a woman to have a safe medical procedure in
which a woman can terminate her child in a safe environment is against
the principal notion for a mother with child to have the same safety
measures, safe guard and precautions a firearm would give that woman
to protect both her and her unborn child with.
While I will not debate
against a woman’s right to choice, in the decision to terminate
a pregnancy or not, though my personal belief is this countries loss
of moral values, over obsession with pornography and sex, and the
degrading portrayal of women as nothing more than whores and sluts
in every aspect of the “entertainment world” which includes
music, television, movies, fashion and magazine venues is it any wonder
why so many women are having abortions in the first place?
In that same line of
thought since women have been degraded to be nothing more than a mere
object, women of today are exploited to sexual subjugation and humiliation
in every media format in which the largest media venue is Hollywood
movies, and since one out of eight movies produced contains a rape
scene the irony here is people are shocked to find out that The United
States of America has the most reported rapes in the world, with approximately
4.8 million a year. Further adding to the irony of debate for the
pro choice movement is the fact the main reason abortion was needed
to be available for women in the first place was first and foremost
women who were sexually and physically assaulted.
And as a result of the
heinous crime that was committed against their person became pregnant.
That has always been the reason to keep abortions legal in the first
Another irony placed
in motion by the pro choice crowd is they demand their first amendment
rights be heard on the subject of pro choice, these are the same people
who wish to silence their opponents with equal time to express opposing
points of view. In fact when it is mentioned that more women die of
medical complications as a result of having a abortion procedure that
went wrong than children die as a result in accidental shootings in
the home with a handgun, the pro choice people don’t want that
information out to the public for some strange reason.
As previously stated
as a woman I support Individual rights although people are misguided
on what individual rights are as opposed to UNALIENABLE rights.
As a student of American
history I know abortion was not a individual right the founding Fathers
of this country saw as a right in pursuant to happiness. In fact the
one thing that separates the great country of America from the rest
of the world is the importance of its citizens the right to vote and
the irony of the pro choice movement is every single time the issue
was put to a ballet for a vote, the issue of abortion was defeated
every single time. Knowing this the proponents for the pro choice
movement went around the boundaries of a democracy and imposed their
will at the hands of liberal Justices who sit on the surpreme court.
The irony in this is
these supporters of women’s rights especially for those women
of low incomes, these same supporters never seem to be around when
women of low income housing are beaten, raped and murdered every day
and due to the fact many of these women live in government subsided
housing are prohibited from owning a firearm per rules and regulations
of the government which is in clear violation of the constitution
of the United States, which the forefathers clearly identified that
it was not the right of a government to allow people the right to
defend themselves thus allowing the people the right to bear arms
no the founders of the constitution and the framers who wrote the
Declaration of Independence and the people who argued in the Federalist
all agreed that the right to defend ones own life and protect personal
property was a unalienable right granted not by man or government
but by the CREATOR himself.
One has to ponder the
irony of those who say they are pro choice for a women to be able
to terminate a helpless being that has absolute no choice in the matter
as opposed to not supporting a woman’s pro choice in deciding
to defend herself from harms way with a firearm against a real threatening
human who is already been brought to full term, how ironic is that?
